3 - Guardiola is the third manager to win the Premier League in addition to at least two of the other top-five European leagues, joining Carlo Ancelotti and Jose Mourinho in the exclusive club.

Pep Guardiola talks all things Spurs-Man City, Raheem Sterling's performance and what he'll be doing instead of watching Man United-West Brom.

There is a sense that Pep Guardiola's expensively-assembled side could be entering a period of domination, however, and Kompany says that is the next target for the squad. "I've been lucky to win three titles but so many I've missed as well". They can surpass Chelsea's Premier League record of 30 (2016-17) by winning three of their remaining five fixtures.

18 - Their run of 18 consecutive wins - from beating Bournemouth 2-1 on August 26 to a 1-0 victory at Newcastle United on December 27 - set a new Premier League record.

Toure, one of only two Manchester City players to have lifted the European Cup, was overlooked by Guardiola for both games as they crashed out at the quarter-final stage with a 5-1 aggregate defeat at the hands of Liverpool.

Russian Federation has to answer important questions: United Kingdom envoy on nerve agent attack
In an executive summary made public at Britain's request, it said "the toxic chemical was of high purity" but did not name it. The UK's own experts had previously named it as Novichok, a nerve agent developed in the old Soviet Union.

The Catalan headed for Sandiway Golf Club in Cheshire fully expecting United to collect maximum points against the league's bottom club, but Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute goal sealed a surprise result on Sunday. I have seen many teams win it as champions for the whole season, and it's the first case for us. "Today I'm happy and I suppose my team-mates will roll their eyes a little bit but I kind of want to see what the reaction is going to be now. I've never been able to retain the title and want to see if this team has got it to carry on and be even more successful".

They've now won three of the last seven PL titles available.

"I don't know if I was the first or if I was the second or the third, but I congratulated them face-to-face when I had the chance to do it". Man City's Kevin De Bruyne acknowledges the tiredness within the squad and how important it was to see off Spurs after a hard string of matches.

Thierry Henry: "I am not surprised with what Pep has done in this league and past year, I was one of the people saying stop having a go at the man because that's how he plays".
